Wedding Dress With Short Sleeves

A wedding dress with short sleeves is a beautiful option for a bride who wants to be comfortable on her big day. The short sleeves allow you to move around freely and they will keep you cool on your wedding day. They are also flattering, making it easy to pick out your favorite style.

The great thing about short sleeves is that they add a little variety to your wedding attire. If you want your dress to stand out from the crowd, then this may be the perfect choice for you.

Many brides like the way that their arms look in sleeveless dresses, but there are also those who prefer to have their forearms covered up at all times. At any rate, there is no reason why you can’t have both options available on your big day!

I’m sure that you’ll agree with me when I say: wedding dress is one of the most important parts of a wedding. They’re one of the most beautiful, expensive, and elegant garments in the world, so choosing a wedding dress that’ll compliment you and your partner on your special day can be quite an undertaking.

Wedding Dress With Short Sleeves

There are plenty of reasons for preferring wedding dresses with short sleeves. From wanting to cover up a tattoo to a wedding in cooler weather to wanting something different from the sea of strapless, short-sleeved wedding dresses are a lovely, modern choice.

These tiny, layered flutter sleeves are perfect for a summer wedding and balance out the deep notched bodice and flowy, full skirt.

Fitted Cap Sleeves

Wedding dresses with short sleeves definitely don’t have to be short on sultriness. This stunning, body-hugging gown features petite cap sleeves and an embellished neckline.

Scalloped Lace

Because princess wedding gowns already have so much coverage, it’s easy for sleeves to add too much to the effect, leaving you feeling too covered up to really shine through. These scalloped lace sleeves are a terrific proportion for this voluminous gown.

Textured Details

Some of our favorite modern wedding dresses feature lots of texture through beading and embroidered details. This relaxed wedding dress has simple short sleeves and an open keyhole back, all peeking through plenty of fabulous crystals.

Beaded Embellishment

This cutting-edge wedding dress certainly isn’t for the demure bride. We’re crazy for the tiered skirt and faux-separates silhouette. But mostly we love the bodice with its sheer fabric, beaded details, and barely-there short sleeves.

Sleeved Separates

Speaking of separates, they are a helpful way to find the bridal look you’ve been envisioning. Particularly if you have a few details you are focused on, such as short sleeves or a tulle skirt, buying separates can often be the easiest way to find exactly what you want.

Simple Flutter Sleeves

Want a wedding dress that will move with the breeze at your outdoor wedding? This charming dress with short flutter sleeves and simple design would not only look great, but also feel amazing as you spend the day in the sun.

Retro Lace Sleeves

Whether you want a short wedding dress or a fashionable reception alternative, this lace shift dress with short sleeves is a playful option. Reminiscent of 1960s cool, this lace shift can be simply styled with a pair of flats or sandals.

Sheer Statement

These sheer sleeves on this dramatic wedding dress are gorgeous, and also showcase the intricate lace work you can have running down to your elbow when you choose this type of sleeve. The best of both worlds, it gives you a little bit of coverage without overwhelming the look.

Wide Sleeves

Sleeves that are really popular on boho and lace wedding dresses are wide sleeves. Ideal for dresses with body-skimming silhouettes, these sleeves add lots of character and visual interest to a sheath wedding dress.

Elbow-Length Options

And for those who don’t want to wear long sleeves to their summer wedding, but also really want to avoid short ones (we all have our least favorite features), elbow-length sleeves can be a chic choice. We love how they look with fuller skirts, such as with this tea-length a-line dress.
